Haha, nice overclock. I had bad experiences with overclocking mobile GPUs before, so I am staying away from it for now. When I first picked up my Dell notebook three years ago, I had such a massive overclock on it, that it doubled the 3D Mark 2001 score. Two dead LCDs later and one replaced GPU, I am not sure to blame the overclocking or not ;-)

Well, it's about a 20% performance increase. It's not bad, but it's no record.

One guy had his running at 660/850 or something, scored 5100 in 3dmark06.

I can't check my 3DMark from class, online results only, and it's blocked.
